In Topic: The Jairus Watson Artwork Challenge

18 April 2011 - 07:29 PM

As Jairus indicated the total entries for the Challenge here on the forum was the 4 that are posted in last evenings posting. There were 10 total entries from the PNW Model Car Fest, here is the link to the Fotki album for those that don't have Facebook.


Honestly, 14 total entries for 65 packets given or emailed isn't that out of line. No one should feel they let anyone down, we all have lives and sometimes that gets in the way of hobbies.

But, I would challenge each of you who has unfinished builds, to go ahead and complete those builds, that includes me and Jairus.

Thank you again for participating in the Challenge.

So, I bet you all thought I had forgotten about you and the Jairus Watson Artwork Challenge! Honestly, life has been hectic of late, but no matter how hectic you don't let others down. Anyway, the end of the Jairus Watson Artwork Challenge is quickly coming to an end. Here is the plan, starting this evening and ending at Midnight (12am) Pacific Daylight Savings time on Friday April 15th, 2011 submit photos of your completed build to JWAC2011@gmail.com. Submit at least 1 photo that best replicates the artwork that you received at the start of the Challenge ie:attempt to photograph your build from the same angle and orientation of the artwork. Remember the object of the Challenge is to best replicate the original artwork, the same thing needs to apply to the photo(s) that you submit.

Over the weekend of April 16-17, Jairus, James Warkentin and myself will compare your photos to the original artwork, the build the we feel best replicates the artwork will be declared the winner of the Jairus Watson Artwork Challenge. The winner will be notified and posted here on the MCM Forum no later the 9PM Pacific Daylight Savings Time April 17th, 2011.

Again, email your entry photo(s) to JWAC2011@gmail.com no later then 12AM (midnight) Pacific Daylight Savings Time Friday April 15th, 2011. We are looking forward to seeing your completed builds and hoping you seriously challenge us when it comes to judging your entries.

Well guys. The contest was set for one-year and was announced at the 20th Pacific NW Model Fest here in Portland OR. I would expect that the judging/deadline will be same date... which is mid March 2011.

(P.S. I am working on the art for the flyers and t-shirts tonight liberally lubricated on brew and Beatles)


Actually, with the fact that the PNW Model Fest getting moved to April 10th the deadline here gets the same extension. So, instead of March 27th, we all get an additional 2 weeks for the Challenge Build.

As Jairus noted, get those builds going, we're down to aprox 2 months.
